In Topic: Bukh diesels?

I have a dv20 on my boat, which has been going strong since the boat launched in 1977. It has been rebuilt once when someone (another one) forgot to open the cooling intake. Other than that the only problem has been a fuel blockage in the tank, which is not the engines fault. 

I like the decompression lever and manual crank as I can manually start it when the batteries are flat.

In Topic: AUS - who do you for insurance.

I have been using these guys for about 15 years: http://www.anchorage...u/openpage.html currently paying around $800 for $60k value and racing in NSW under 10nm.

Every now and then I get a quote from someone else and it is always much higher. I have only made one when some dickhead t-boned me on the mooring. Two holes punched through the hull, but well above the water line, of course they did not leave a note or make any attempt to notify me. Insurance paid out with no problems whatsoever.
